Heimatkunde: Refuge - Migration - Integration in Brandenburg

Welcome at Heimatkunde Brandenburg! On this page you will find contemporary as well as historical examples of immigration in Brandenburg. Migration with all its causes and facets is not a new phenomenon of the recent past. Quite the contrary: Brandenburg always has been a region of people coming in. Our 'migration stories' start in the 16th century and end in 2018 Brandenburg: short clips are showing the different aspects of recent migration. Our project has an integrative character as the films were created in collaboration with young refugees - out of whom one was also behind the camera.
